What I hate is trying to get anywhere in December--all the roads are clogged with people who seem to only drive once a year and that's to the mall. Speaking of the mall--the stores start trying to sell presents as soon as HALLOWEEN is over! They don't even wait for Thanksgiving any longer. And how about making their employees work all night so they're ready for the crowds at midnight?! That's the holiday spirit.
And not everyone wants to hear Christmas carols on every radio station and in every store. Enough already. Stop presuming we're all Christians celebrating one holiday.
What I DO like are the decorated houses! I think it reminds me of my childhood when we'd all climb into the car and travel around looking at them. I saw a great one on Eaton in San Carlos last week. I imagine their electric bill is like the national debt this month.
I decided to decorate myself for our annual guild's holiday event tonight. We're supposed to bring something for the potluck that goes with our ethnicity or heritage. Matthew was heading to Costco today, so I asked if he could find a German chocolate cake for me....and if not, a tart would work.
Ah, for the good ole days...
